This series of eight sessions aims to increase provider’s knowledge of strategies, skills and resources for supporting the complex needs of children with Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome and their families. The training is delivered via Zoom using a tele-practice model known as Extension for Community Health Outcomes or ECHO®. The ECHO Model ® uses adult learning principles and video conferencing technology to connect community providers in NH and ME with specialists at local centers of excellence in real-time case-based learning and mentorship. During the ECHO providers build a community of practice with other professionals across disciplines.
